We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. That's why Bustle has enlisted Mecca Woods, a New York City-based Astrologer of MyLifeCreated.com, to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each day. Today's topic: your daily horoscope for Jan. 3, 2017.
Venus (the planet of love, pleasure, and wealth) leaves rebellious and cool-headed Aquarius for sensitive and intimate Pisces early this morning, which should lend a rosy glow to relationships and money related activities. With the Moon still in Pisces, the emotional sensitivity is heightened which makes today good for putting cell phones on silent and spending the day with someone we love or at least doing something we love. When communicative Mercury (retrograde) in Capricorn meets up with Venus in Pisces for a chat this afternoon, it will be a perfect time to reconnect with people we haven't seen in a while or to follow-up on a money matter that may have gotten lost in the retrograde shuffle. Later this evening, when the dreamy Pisces Moon squares off with realistic Saturn in Sagittarius, the logical option or choice in a matter is the best one.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.
And remember to tune into Bustle's weekly horoscopes video live on Facebook every other Monday (beginning on Jan. 9) at 4 p.m. ET for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
It's time to dial it down a notch, Aries. Though instead of taking this time out as a form of punishment, use it to clear your space of toxicity and raise your energetic vibration (aka the vibe you give off), to attract and receive the good stuff in store for you. In matters of the heart, just say no to a secret (off-limits) affair.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Who are the people in your neighborhood? This is the question of the moment as your friendships, allies, and associations are called into focus. Get out and get social (yes, you have to get off Twitter sometime), as the key to your seeing your hopes and wishes come true will be all about who you know.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
I hope you're ready for boss status because as of today, that's where you're headed. Whether you're up for a promotion, going after the perfect job, or paving the way for an entrepreneurial effort, there's no time like now to grab the brass ring. When it comes to collabs or joint ventures, make sure everyone is on the same page.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
How do you spell love? For now, it's E-S-C-A-P-E. If there's one thing you do today, make sure it includes some sort of travel. Whether it's booking a trip with your beloved, attending an event that blows your mind, or exploring something that takes you beyond your immediate environment. Love exists beyond borders.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Intimacy doesn't always have to translate into a four-letter word (or a three-letter word). Sometimes it's about having someone show up for you in ways that others won't. When it comes to your closest relationships now (romantic included) who's showing up for you? Let those people know how much you appreciate them.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
It's all about love and partnership today as coupled Virgos could reaffirm their bond with a proposal or another big step, while single Virgos could meet someone with a soulmate kind of vibe. Though before you get whisked off by love, ask yourself first: is this relationship or step you're taking together is sustainable?
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
If you were thinking of beginning a new health regimen for the new year, today is the perfect time to start. However, don't let negative self-talk be the impetus for change but rather a desire to feel good in your body. When it comes to your work life, consider working with your body's natural rhythm to improve productivity.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Get ready for some sweet, sweet lovin' (as if you'd complain). The stars align to fill your cup with romance and creative juice. You could meet someone special that awakens your muse or deepen the bond with the lover in your life now. Though when it comes to new romance, make sure their values align with yours.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Don't be surprised if you're not up for much interaction with the outside world today because it's all about going inward. Use this time to draw closer to family, shift the energy of your living space by redecorating, look for a new home, or challenge some of your core beliefs. Now's the time to work from the inside out.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Today your mission is to connect with kindred souls and key folk to help you boost your brand or your contact list. Keep business cards close, make sure your LinkedIn page, website, and social media accounts are updated as people will be wanting to know more about what you do. Though, be discreet with personal biz.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Your financial picture brightens up significantly today, which means that if you need to follow-up on job leads now is the time to do it. This also means that a new money opportunity could present itself, while those of you planning to stay put may want to request a raise. Above all else, know your worth (and others will too).
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Welp, might as well tell everyone else they can pack it up and go home now because over half the cosmos is on your side now, which makes you the winner. The question is, what will you do with this all of this power? Hint: If you're thinking about spending the day on the couch in front of the TV, don't.
